7:04 am
and trees around cabins. all they can do is steer it away from communities and wait for nature to take its course. chris back to you. >> donna rsi of affiliate kpho, thank you. it will be brutally hot across two-thirds of the nation thanks to a heat wave. one of the cities battling the heat philadelphia. nicole, what are you expecting in philadelphia today? >> reporter: good morning to you, chris. we're live along the scenic boathouse row in philly. people are trying to squeeze in the morning workout before it heats up. in filly looking at about 97 degrees, which does break the record of 95. of course as we know it's not just here in philly, in fact excessive heat warnings are issued for most of the east coast with dangerous conditions forecasted through tomorrow evening. with the hot and nasty
7:05 am

7:06 am
heat and when it's expected to end. here it's just beginning in new york city. >> that's right, good morning to you. we start off in the southwest, where we're looking at the wildfires, so take a look at the critical fire area from arizona to colorado, we're looking at temperatures in the 80s and 90s, upper 80s and 90s. the humidity is very low and the wind gusts are pretty severe. during the daytime hours folks could see wind gusts of up to 45 miles per hour. overnight hours the wind starts to diminish but by morning time the cycle starts all over again. conditions last through saturday. from that part of the nation through new england, we're looking at a heat wave. summer hasn't officially begun. some temperatures break records from 1933, only june so the nation's capital, new york city, could break records. lasts for awhile and we'll keep an eye on it for you. erica, back over to you. >> mary, thanks, get a fan and a
7:07 am
bottle of water today. latest on the economy, president obama visiting a community college in virginia to talk about the importance of getting americans back to work. yesterday he said americans shouldn't panic over the latest slowdown in the economy. for some folks easier said than done. rebecca jarvis is here with a look at how difficult it is to find a job. many americans would say very. >> very difficult. economic data has been trending weaker as we have discussed. now a new report on job openings raises fears employers are getting less optimistic about new hires, not what you want to see at this point in the recovery especially on the heels of last week's jobs report which shows the economy just created 54,000 jobs. >> we have set a path that will lead us to long-term economic growth. >> reporter: the president tried to reassure the nation and its nearly 14 million unemployed that we're not heading into another recession, but he is worried about the job market.
7:08 am
>> i'm not concerned about a double dip recession. i am concerned about the fact that the recovery that we're on is not producing jobs as quickly as i want it to happen. >> for carissa lisch the concerns are personal. >> i'd like to have a job as soon as i possibly can. >> reporter: since losing her job in november she's fearful her prospects are dwindling. >> right now six months so hopefully it's not going to go any further than the summer, i hope. >> reporter: that hope may be getting slimmer. numbers out tuesday show job openings had dropped from 3.1 million to 3 million in the last month. meaning there are roughly 4.5 job seekers for every job vacancy, three times the number we saw before the recession. >> households are facing significant headtwinds. >> reporter: the fed chair acknowledged a weakening economy, blaming the high gas
7:09 am
prices and crisis in japan but called it temporary. >> growth seems likely to pick up somewhat in the second halfful the year. >> reporter: bernanke did not commit the government to any intervention to boost the economy. carissa lisch can only heap the fed chair is right and the slowdown will turn around. >> i was hoping the unemployment rate would drop. i'm not sure why it's taking so long. like it's just been too long maybe this time. >> carissa knows how long it is, and to stay resolute. 2 million americans have given up looking for work, and that's too big a number. >> looking at the landscape going forward the president trying to be optimistic about this as we hear him speaking, saying he's not concerned about a double dip recession. what are analysts telling you?
7:10 am
do they see one coming? >> robert reich, former secretary of labor under president clinton believes there's a 40% chance. if there's a double dip, we see unemployment go up again, we could see gasoline prices go up, and the housing picture gets more bleak than it is. like i said in the beginning, we've talked about this a lot, the picture is trending weaker so we need to find a way to boost that momentum. >> we know many jobs are gone forever, whether companies have learned to do more with less or the jobs don't exist anymore because of the economic situation. what are some areas and how are they being replaced? >> a lot of it is concentrated in the manufacturing field. manufacturing of things that we just don't buy here in the united states or things that people don't buy usa made goods. so those are the jobs where the president has even talked about this, he believes that there's going to have to be a transition, those workers who
7:11 am
deal with for example old outdated cars will have to transition to new technologies, technologies like alternative energy, things we're seeing coming out of silicon valley, where there's more growth coming out of silicon valley and technology. >> what about gas prices? you touched on this briefly, trending downward which is good, but -- >> trending downward but a dollar higher than last year. analysts and economists are expecting everything remains constant, we could see prices down $3.50, even $3.25 by the end of the summer. >> silver lining to end on. >> thanks. >> that was the silver lining. >> they could go down to $3.25. you know? >> i was waiting on that silver lining. >> we'll take ning we can. >> jeff glor for the rest of the headlines. >> good morning to you and everyone at home as well. nato's heavy bombardment of tripoli continued overnight and into the morning. moammar gadhafi said he will never surrender and "welcomes

7:41 am
growth in the asia-pacific where the economy is growing's special will i in china. we'll expand operations everywhere in which we sell the great vehicles. >> reporter: do you think it's safe to say with this focus on china and on india, perhaps there's a view that here in the united states, things still hold a lot of uncertainty? >> well, i am very confident that with the fiscal and monetary policy and attention on economic development in the united states we'll get through this recession and keep expanding. >> reporter: more and more people are buying cars in the country and we've seen it in the numbers. do you think that, for this country, the worst is behind us? >> well, this is a slower recovery than we've had in the past, but it is recovering. we were in a very deep hole with our recession and i'm very pleased that everybody's attention is on economic development and growing our economy. but i think it's so important that we all remember that the key, the economic development and probable growth is our
7:42 am
competitiveness so we're going to continue that competitiveness every year. >> part of that xet i haveness is making more fuel efficient cars. i talked to mulally about the types of cars we see in the future. first hybrid and then electric cars. he also said it's really helped the collective bargaining that he's done with the unions that populate ford as far as employees go, that has helped them become more competitive as well through concessions and through new negotiations about what they get paid and how much their pensions are. >> allow to pay less basically that's lowed this emto be more competitive. we talked about this last week not just ford but the big three automakers in the u.s. had to pull back and realized americans don't want the big cars, they need to make smaller cars. >> 55% of ford's cars are projected to be smaller cars by 2020. they make more money on the big cars, the real sit they make higher margins on the cars but
7:43 am
they think now that they're expanding to the likes of asia, they can make a lot of money by doing it with small cars because that's what they demand there. >> that's right, what more folks are buying here as we saw. rebecca, thanks. more troubles for tiger woods, what it he has to say about skipping the u.s. open and why his future is still very much in doubt. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. you know rheumatoid arthritis means pain. but you may not know it can also mean destruction. not just of your joints, but of the things you love to do. and the longer you live with the aching, swelling, and stiffness, the closer you may be to having your favorite things... taken away from you. but you can take action today. go to ra.com for your free joint profile so you can better talk to your rheumatologist about protecting your joints.

welcome back to "the early show" here on a wednesday morning. i'm chris wragge along with erica hill. some of the most dramatic moments from this arab spring happened in cairo. weeks of protest drove egyptian president hosni mubarak out of office. >> no one can predict where the democratic revolution will take this country. we are looking at that part of the world. >> elizabeth palmer is in cairo with the latest on egypt's road to democracy. good morning.
8:01 am
>> reporter: hello, chris. well, there are some bumps on the road as you might imagine. this is where it all started most dramatically, where the government was really overthrown. since then the country is taking over but people don't have faith in the forces of security especially the police very loyal to the old regime, beat people, arbitrary arrests so that's a nagging worry for people. however, we've been out in the countryside and talking to people in the city and i dare say there's a sense of cautious optimism and with elections moving this fall some excitement. ♪ four months ago, tahrir square crammed with egyptians was the heart of an upsizing that toppled egypt's corrupt government. today, it's back to being a traffic circle in the center of cairo. although especially on fridays, groups of young esipgss rally, keeping up the pressure or the shift to democratic rule. these days tahrir square is the
8:02 am
focus of smaller demonstrations but also turned into a carnival of nationalism, a place where you can buy a t-shirt or hat or get your hands and your arm painted, egyptians love their country, and they're proud of what they call the revolution. three solid weeks of stubborn and sometimes violent demonstrations that forced president hosni mubarak to quit in february. it was a victory for reform, but a disaster for the economy, which is now the people's number one concern. empty hotels deserted attractions say it all. tourism used to generate $4 billion a year. this march, earnings were down by two-thirds. thousands of families already poor have lost their livelihoods. >> translator: my horse died. i simply couldn't afford to feed
8:03 am
him. >> reporter: egypt's army which sided with the people during the uprising plans to hand power back to civilians this fall and a controversial new player is on the scene, the muslim brotherhood, banned by the old regime as an extremist group it's now campaigning hard in the mainstream for votes, a prospect that has secular egyptians rattled. >> i'm worried, for example, it would be one of those muslim countries like iran or like the gulf, and every woman has to wear a veil. >> reporter: a recent poll showed 15% of decided voters so far will support the brotherhood. although a huge majority of egyptians say they do intend to vote. now all eyes are on ousted president hosni mubarak who is under arrest and quite ill in
8:04 am
sharm el sheikh. the military will put him on trial in august. the military will be forced out of power in the next year or two. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. in the month that followed, several people have risen as potential candidates to lead the new egypt. one is mohammed eed elbaradei. he is winner of the nobel peace prize and leader of the to a comic national energy agency. >> we need to move quickly on the road to democracy, empowering people, proper democratic election for parliament, proper democratic election for president and democratic institution that reflects the views of the majority but have adequate absolute protection for minorities, equality for everybody. we should take our time as with many other countries to make sure at the end of the day we really are moving into a new egypt and not just reincarnation
8:05 am
of the old regime. it's not a question of change of places but a change of regime, completely different mind-set and i hope that they understand that, i believe they understand that but they need to understand that things take time and they should not rush it because that could have major implications for the next few decades. >> that was mohamed elbaradei earlier from cairo. joining us, bobby ghosh from "time" magazine, which reports on egypt in the latest issue. good morning. good to see you. >> hi, chris. >> we talked about the people having cautious optimism, mr. elbaradei talks about people being patient. you hear about certain situations being so poor in that country. >> people are probably going to be willing to give this up to the election, and there isn't a date yet but most likely it will happen in the winter, there will be parliamentary elections and presidential elections. hopefully the new government that comes out of it and maybe
8:06 am
mr. ba rah day will have a role in it will get a honeymoon but not a long one, not the kind we're used to in this country. egyptians are hurting, the economy is in bad shape, enormous unemployment and because of all the uncertainties in the country, one of the biggest earners, tourism is way down. so people know that they need to be patient but on the other hand, when you're having difficulty finding a job, making ends meet, feeding your family, it's a little difficult to stay patient very long. >> mr. ba rah day told me he is going to run if certain conditions exist. he's probably the person most are familiar with. is he the leading candidate? >> he's most familiar because of his role in the iaea and nobel prize. for egyptians the more likely is amr moussa, there was a pop song named after him, popular in the
8:07 am
90s a '90s and mr. ba rah day's career is outside of egypt. so election day a lot of things can change. the google guy who remembers became the face of tahrir square he will be a face as well. >> we mentioned in the piece most of the u.s. is a little bit nervous, the brotherhood stand to gain a number of seats, should certain egyptians be nervous with their inclusion? >> the muslim brotherhood will probably wind up best guess, 30% to 40%. they're the best organized, the oldest political organization but again best guesses are a sort of conglomerate of different secular groups will get a larger number of seats. whether they can form a coalition is to be seen. the egyptian brotherhood has
8:08 am
been taking care to tone down their rhetoric in the last couple of years, even before hosni mubarak was overthrown and since that they've been much more conciliatory. once they get to rule, if they get to rule they'll be confronted with real issues, the hard work of doing government, and i suspect you'll see they will then find themselves too busy doing that to be sort of delivering the heated rhetoric that we see from them in the past. >> bobby, thank you very much. love the socks. >> thank you. >> arab summer continues tomorrow on "the early show" with a look at tunisia, where the first pro-democracy proest ises began some six months ago which set this whole thing in motion. here's jeff glor with another check of the headline this is morning. >> good morning once again to you, chris. we begin in libya, nato launched more air raids in tripoli overnight. we'll start with alan pizzey in
8:09 am
tripoli. >> reporter: good morning, jeff. one of the bombs vibrated the hotel so much i had the sensation more of being in an earthquake than a bombing raid which might indicate they were the bunker busters that go deep down underground before they explode. nato was targeting command and control centers which they claim gadhafi forces have moved into the city abandoning positions in the hinterland. we were told the natureland or farm area where gadhafi meets important guests and scattered all around us were the burned remnants of what was certainly carpeting and probably tents and tent poles decorated in the way i've seen gadhafi's tents decorated. interestingly off a little ways away a wind sock which told us there were planes or suspects landing there. when we asked the man in charge
8:10 am
he said oh it's something for the wind. we said yes we know that but that's as far as he was willing to go. there was no one there when the place was bombed. it was two missile strikes. the message from nato in that, we know where you like to go so don't think that you can hide from us. i think that's what nato is trying to say here. >> alan pizzey in tripoli, thank you. the latest on the still growing wildfire in eastern arizona. smoke from that fire in arizona has disrupted air traffic in albuquerque, 150 miles away and reduced visibility as far north as denver. the fire blackened nearly 500 square niles of brush and timber and driven thousands of residents from their homes. so far unable to control the flames firefighters protecting threatened towns. the senate is scheduled to vote on capping the fees when customers use debit cards.

the current average fee is 44 cents a transaction, the proposed limit is 12 cents. merchants say the higher fees force them to charge higher prices. congressman anthony weaner is under increasing pressure to resign and he's not getting very much support from fellow democrats. >> i'm not here to defend weiner. that's all i'm going to say. >> what advice would you give him if he asked you? >> call somebody else. >> house democratic leader nancy pelosi has formally requested an investigation after weiner's admission that he lied about various inappropriate online exchanges with women. > . >> good morning. there's a new therapy for wounded warriors you have to see to believe. they are taking injured troops

8:18 am
it a dry screaming because i would scream without any voice. by seventh grade over the summer i went to the er three times in 24 hours, and right after that, they became daily. usually it's throbbing in both my temple lobes. sometimes you can feel my temples spasming. my triggers are different types of smoke, tobacco, cigars, if i don't get enough sleep or eat regular meals, if i go to a place with strobe lights, guaranteed loud music, looking at the sun the wrong way. this is my arsenal of medications. i don't know any other different way of life. i've known pain and i can't imagine a life actually that was completely different. >> awful to hear she can't imagine a life different without the pain. >> really is. >> for people at home who may be wondering if their bad headache
8:19 am
is a migrain. what is the difference? >> this can be difficult for doctors to accurately diagnose because the fact of the matter is a migrain can mimic signs of a stroke and a ruptured aneur m aneurysm. the key between a migrain and regular headache is severity and associated symptoms. nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, potentially neurologic skinz like numbness or sing tingling, one side of the face and difficulty speaking. the key is for you if you know you suffer from migraines don't assume you can have a stroke. if it feels different seek medical attention >> samantha started getting migraines at age 3 seems unimaginable. is it gentlemen net ick? >> there is always a genetic component. they're looking for the migraine gene. 20% of migraines start in children as young as 5 years of age. it's difficult in children
8:20 am
because they're less able to communicate sometimes what they're feeling. >> i can't imagine my kids dealing with that. samantha mentioned her common triggers. do those hold for most people? >> they're difficult. some of the more common, chocolate, aged meats or cheese, some red wines, changes in the weather or hormonal factors and really it is different for everyone so if you suffer from migraines you want to know what your triggers are. >> what about the treatment? >> we divide it up into rescue medications, prevention and lifestyle management, botox is being given to prevent migraines. speak to someone who is an expert in headaches. >> stay with us. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. >> "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by know toe log flexpen. ask your doctor about the benefits today. flexpen comes pre-filled with the insulin i take
